Artists and artist groups may rent the ground floor of this beautiful Victorian-era home to host their own exhibitions! Exhibition rentals run for a full week on the following schedule: installation on Tuesday; public exhibition from Wednesday to Sunday; take-down on Monday. In order to ensure fair access to the exhibit space, an individual artist may book only one solo exhibition per year, unless the exhibit space becomes available and may be offered at the full discretion of the Varley Art Gallery.
Artists are responsible for the complete coordination and supervision of their exhibition. Artists are given a key and security access code to enter and leave the building, which facilitates the option of extended hours at no additional cost.
